Milestone Update: Steroid Hormone Analyses started
The Ultradian Platform for Metabolomics at the University of Bergen has completed the development of the 3rd Generation Steroid Hormone Assay.
As of March 2018, we are in full production mode analyzing microdialysate samples collected from the clinical studies. This is an important milestone in Ultradian project.
The steroid assay is based on liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). The method is able to determine hormones at very low levels in just 10 µL sample in a high-throughput setting. A wide range av mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids and androgen steroids can be quantified.
